USA - Passengers can now enjoy a breathtaking journey as Amtrak brings back the Autumn Express which will run through parts of New Jersey, New York and Northeastern Pennsylvania.

The passenger railroad service has announced that the Autumn Express this year on October 29 and 30. It will take the travelers on a day trip through the Eastern USA.

Lonely Planet wrote that the train will travel through small towns, historic tunnels as well as landmarks. Moreover, it will also travel through Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley which has not seen passenger train since 1960s.

From New York's Penn Station, the autumn Express will pass through the Hudson River and stop in Newark, New Jersey to pick-up passengers. After that, it will head west along the former Lehigh Valley Railroad, Travel + Leisure reported.

"Passengers area treated to historical sights like the Musconetcong Tunnel, which dates back to 1875 and views of charming small towns and famed landmarks as the train winds along Pennsylvania's Farm country, eventually changing direction in Harrisburg before rejoining Amtrak's Northeast Corridor back to Newark and New York."
Tickets are on sale online which cost $149 for adults. The tickets for children age two to twelve traveling with adults cost half the price.

Tickets include a boxed lunch, souvenir tote and lapel pin.

If you are interested to book a ticket, go to Amtrak's website and choose "either 'New York-Penn Station, NY (NYP)' or 'Newark, NJ (NWK)' for the departure, 'Autumn Express-Excursion Train, PA (AXP)' as the arrival station, and October 29 or 30 as the departure date," Travel + Leisure added.
